Benzyl alcohol (boiling point: 205 degrees C) was selected by a student to crystallize fluorenol (melting point: 153-154 degrees C) because the solubility characteristics of this solvent are appropriate. However, this solvent is not a good choice. Explain

PLEASE HELP.... THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!!

  • Chemistry -

    It would depend on the temp of recrystallizaton. If one used a temp above the mp of fluorenol, the solute would not crystalize, but come out as a liquid. It is above the bp.
